I’m currently at Loch Lomond with my daughter and snow is forecast tonight… no worries we have our perfect little heater!! Great way to save diesel when on electric hook up. Has a fall over switch off safety device too. Best £30 I’ve spent on Amazon in ages ❄️ https://amzn.to/3xbI0MB

Some can be quite noisy though, but effective heat produces :)
 
Playing devil's advocate but did you have to pay more for an electric hook up pitch?
If so, that may have cost more than the small amount of diesel that the Cali heater uses.

No. Hook up at the site I’m on was the only option. Grass pitches are too wet still.
 
I have a kampa diddy too, it’s very effective, just a shame it doesn’t have a built in thermostat
 
Same here, Diddy heater, and we’ve got a plug through thermostat that’s very simple (just a dial and an on/off button). The heater isnt too noisy either. We normally pop it on the sink cover in the van. We’ve also used it in an awning to ward off the chill. I wasn’t sure it would work in a larger space but it does.

That’s a really good idea. I’ve just had a search and found this one which has a 1.7m sensor. That would easily reach the roof bed. Next purchase
 
Caliheat make a purpose built snorkel that diverts some of the heat from the factory heater up to the roof. Works well.

Thanks. Just googled that. I see the point when no electricity is available. I don’t think that would be my thing though . It’s also quite expensive. My heater fits in the drawer when not needed and can be easily positioned for upstairs/ downstairs.
 
I would be wary of any cheap heater unless it had a safety certification.

We have a tiny Dimplex 250w desk heater which works really well too.

I was just considering purchasing an electric heater because the diesel heating stops over time.
This works with a remote control. This way you can leave the heating downstairs and turn it on when you sleep upstairs.

Electric blanket is the way to go

Stops over time? You may not have it set for continuous use.
